You are missing to point

Odds of giving up points by making a hail mary vs odds of giving up points by kicking 51 yards in windy conditions.

LOL No, I'm not...

Your odds of an intercepted hail mary or a short FG being returned for a TD combined are still probably much, much less than making the 51 yard FG.

Not to mention Cam thew it out of the field of play... That made your odds of anything good coming out of the pass attempt to 0%.

This should make you feel better:

No coach since 2002 has thrown a Hail Mary instead of attempting a 51 yard FG. That's not bombastic statement. It's fact. 16/16. 12 made FG

You're not making this loss any easier with facts like this. God this is depressing.

The wind was at his back.. he could have made it easy!

I don't think that is true. When I saw the flags, the wind seem to going from side to side, and it was gusting up to 30 mph. A field goal under those circumstances was highly unlikely. And I don't think that pass was really a hail mary, not from the 35 yard line.

Fwiw, I would have liked to see them hit Stewart or Tolbert at the 10 yard line or so, and give the rb a shot at running it in.

I was wondering if the wind got under Cam's pass?

Why Ron?

Medlock 5/5 in hindsight and you need to give the kicker the chance to hit a 51 yard FG.

because rivera is a fuging idiot

considering carolina normally takes a knee in that situation, I'm fine with a hail mary attempt.

almost as questionable as the timeout at the saints game last year. Rivera is an idiot you miss 100% of the shots you don't take at least give medlock a chance. But how are D played at the end they prolly would've scored anyways so oh well

Rivera is a idiot. Said it many times, I'll say it again.
